Some Frequently Asked Questions About Air Purifier Questions

If you’re looking to improve the quality of the air in your home, especially if there are people with asthma and allergies in your household, then installing an air purification system is an excellent idea. You can arrange for a great professional installation with our team.

You probably have many questions about air purification systems. We’ll address a few of the most common ones below. Feel free to contact us and ask us anything you want about our indoor air quality solutions.

Can one air purifier clean the air for my entire house?

Yes, but you will need to have a whole-house air purifier, not a portable air purifier that you can buy at a store. These portable units can only handle one average-sized room and even then aren’t as effective as whole-house units. Whole-house air purifiers must have professional installation: the technicians will place the air purifier into the HVAC system at a point where all the air that circulates through ducts must pass. This allows the power of the air purifier to reach all the rooms in the home.

Should I use an air purifier and an air filter?

Yes, we strongly recommend it. Have air filters installed first to handle the larger particles in the house, then have technicians match the filter with the right type of purifier to trap and eliminate smaller particles or make them easier for the filter to trap. Many air purification systems come with filters integrated into them.

Do air purifiers create any harmful side effects?

The current air purifiers that we provide and install in homes do not create any harmful side effects. Some air purifiers placed ozone in the air, and there are still a few of these on the market. We don’t work with those units.

Will an air purifier remove mold and mildew?

It depends on the type of air purifier. If the whole-house air purifier you have installed includes UV germicidal lights, then it will help with eliminating mold spores passing through the HVAC system and kill off mold and mildew that attempts to grow along the evaporator coil of the AC. However, if you already have mold and mildew in the house, the air purifier won’t do anything to remove them. You’ll need mold remediation and cleaning services to handle this.

How can I tell if my air purifier is broken?

Because air purification systems, for the most part, work silently inside the ductwork, homeowners may not be aware of when the air purifier is actually working or not. When you first have an air purification system installed, you’ll know it’s working because professionals did the job—they’ll double-check the purifier’s operation. If you start to notice later that allergies and asthma are increasing in your home, it’s a good idea to contact us for air purifier repair in Newtown, PA. We can monitor the air in your house and examine the air purifier to see if it needs repairs.

How long will an air purifier last?

You can expect to get about 10 to 15 years of quality service from a whole-house air purifier. If the air purification system also uses air filters, make sure you know the regular schedule for changing them. You may shorten the air purifier’s service life if you don’t change the filters regularly.
